I love reading deep, thought-provoking novels; but every once in awhile I need a book that just allows me to escape. You know what I mean -- one of those books that makes you laugh out loud and possibly even snort soda through your nose! Well, YOU CAN'T DRINK ALL DAY IF YOU DON'T START IN THE MORNING by Celia Rivenbark really hit the spot for me!

YOU CAN'T DRINK ALL DAY is a collection of very funny essays that cover a little bit of everything -- from Christian action figures to High School Musical to Jon & Kate Plus 8. As a mother of a young girl who is about the same age as Ms. Rivenbark's daughter, I could relate to quite a few of her stories about being a wife and mom. There were times that I was shaking my head at her outrageous (yet hilarious) opinions about life in general, and there were other times that I was absolutely howling!

I loved Ms. Rivenbark's spot-on perspectives about life in general -- her essays were entertaining while also being extremely... Read more
Definitely her best effort yet. Celia Rivenbark shines when she dishes local and talks about her upbrangin' with all things Southern. Calling out Gwyneth Paltrow for trying to show us mere mortals how to live better lives made me cheer because somewhere along the line I saw a video of Paltrow with her personal trainer. Pardon me while I go eat an 8 oz. cheeseburger.

And her solid support of a few well placed @#$%^ words is really all it took for me to feel vindicated for what I said in my mind to Paltrow after seeing the exercise vid.

The last thing I have to mention is the excellent tradition of sex on bank holidays. She should be the Surgeon General of the US for this alone.

What can I say? It's funny, relaxing and a lovely thing to read while sipping your favorite toddy.
I have all of Celia's books and have followed her for years.

She's a take no prisoner, tell it like it is kind of gal.

Southern to the bone, but with a wicked sense of sarcasm rippling through her that most of our mammas manage to beat out of us at an early age in the pursuit of always being genteel and proper.

Let me tell you, I would sit down with Celia and shoot stories, and poppers, with her any day.

Her stories are very true to life and come from her daily experiences. Every chapter is it's own story and they range from Jesus Action figures she sees in Walmart to Mothers sending their very sick kids to school to get that perfect attendance award... while the rest of the kids catch the coodies.

Like I said, no holding back.

Grab this book - but don't read it when you're drinking hot coffee or soda - it hurts when it comes out your nose.
